Research Interests: General Equilibrium Modelling, Software Design
While at Monash University (our previous home), I originated the MMRF and TERM many-region single-country CGE models and contributed to the development of the MONASH model. I also created a unified database which underlies all three Australian models. Overseas, I have created CGE models for Albania, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Chile, China, Finland, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Philippines, Poland, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
As a CGE evangelist, I have assisted groups in a number of Pacific Rim countries to construct their own GE models. Some of that work is described here. I have also built a number of Windows programs to assist GE modellers in their work, of which ViewHAR and RunGTAP are perhaps the most widely known. In 2007, my emphasis shifted further in that direction; I now lead the team behind the GEMPACK software, developed over many years by Ken Pearson and others.
I have authored or co-authored 1 book, 40 journal articles and 17 book chapters.
I have been associated with the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) in various ways since its inception, and since 2009 am one of 3 'members-at-large' of the GTAP Consortium or Advisory Board. I have contributed data to the GTAP database for many countries, including Albania, Botswana, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Iran, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
